South Carolina football fans have not been quite as rabid for the spring season to start as they have been in most years. The Gamecocks' basketball teams have served as a great distraction as they have the best combined record in all of college basketball, and both Lamont Paris' team and Dawn Staley's squad will compete in this year's NCAA Tournament.

However, the hunger for football is still there.
